Bangkok--22 Jul--Dusit International

Leading Asian hotel chain Dusit International continues its mission to help bring smiles to children living with facial abnormalities through its Dusit Smiles programme, run in partnership with Operation Smile Thailand (OST).

Recently, representatives of both organisations met at Dusit Thani Bangkok’s Benjarong Restaurant where Dusit COO Mr David Shackleton presented a donation of 205,658.14 THB to Dr. Paul Robere, Board Member of Operation Smile Thailand. The donation brings Dusit Smiles’ year-to-date total to 507,941.72 THB, just over its 2015 goal of 500,000 THB. Dusit’s CSR Team is confident that with 5 more months left to the year, they will continue to raise this figure so that more children can receive the reconstructive facial surgeries they need, completely free of charge.

The donation funds were collected through various initiatives, including staff and guests donations as well as activities such as Colour Miles for Smiles, the student-led 5km charity run held in Bangkok this April.

Also earlier this year, the dusitD2 Chiang Mai hotel provided accommodation and meals for the producers, directors and crew members behind Operation Smile Thailand’s new promotional video, “The Painted Smile.” The film, conceptualised and shot by multi-award winning advertising agency BBDO, will be shown on various channels including True TV, Major Cineplex, VGI Global Media, TV Direct and more. Dusit International will feature the short film on the TV screens in all guest rooms of its Thailand hotels.
